Fun Happenings in RGV

Garret having fun with new friendsEvery weekend there seems to be fun happenings in the RGV. Being fun-loving people we want to experience all we can here. Friday night was Viva Streets Harlingen. People were getting around downtown on foot, skateboards and bikes. It was a lot of fun as you can see here.

Saturday we went to Harlingen’s 10th Annual Classic Car Show. There were hundreds of cars to see. Apparently the Harlingen Policia have been entering their Corvette in Car Show’s for a while. They even won Best In Show at one event.

In the afternoon Garret and I went to a really cool meet-and-greet Political event in Los Fresnos. It was a little awkward for us both for several reasons. 1. we were way underdressed, and 2. we still don’t speak much Spanish (gotta work on that more!). We got to meet and get to know a little about our government leaders (and future leaders!). And the wonderful part was community getting together, the music and good food.

Gar and Viv with Mariachi band

There was a Mariachi Band that played some beautiful authentic Mariachi music. It was important for us to get a photo with them, but it was unfortunate that I stepped in dog poo while getting into place for the photo! of all things! I guess I was trying to hide my foot in the photo.

Night Out On The Town

We went out and had a great night on the town last night. It’s always nice to spend some time with Cindy Martinez, she has really become a great friend. It’s always nice finding people who you mesh with. Here we are standing in front of one of the great Harlingen Murals.

One of us did manage to get a bit of dancing in as we listened to Dan The Man Harryman perform!
